SSDT setup files does not extract payload folder

Hi,

I downloaded SDDT for VS2017 and I am trying to create offline installer for it using the commandline
SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /layout

However this commandline only extracts redist folder and not the payload folder
I ran the command prompt as administrator, still it is not extracting payload folder.

Is there any way of extracting this payload folder?

Hi, @Rachna-2915

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

I did not find the command you ran in this document, you can refer to this document for offline installation.


Update:
According to the Release notes for SQL Server Data Tools:

15.9.4, SSDT for VS 2017
Changed the installer to full installer that does not require downloading payload from internet.

But even with the old version of SSDT, I still cannot use the /layout parameter to extract the payload folder.


Sincerely,
Peng

Hi,

the command I ran is the one which setup file suggest
for e.g. on running SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /help you will get all the command that can be ran with this file
and the help file suggest to run /layout for extracting the files.

However this does not extract payload folder while many sites suggest that it extract payload folder.
For e.g. I am getting Incorrect function error and following site suggest to run files from payload folder
https://5minutebi.com/2018/06/03/ssdt-for-visual-studio-2017-fixing-the-install-error/

There are few other sites that suggest the same thing.

So therefore my problem is why payload folder is not getting extracted for me?
